The 2006 Yquem, which I last tasted in 2014, continues to be a great Yquem, not quite among the top tier but let's slot it in one level below. It possesses virtually the same aromatics as the last bottle that I tasted at the chateau: beeswax and lanolin merging with honeyed fruit, dried quince and marzipan. The palate is medium-bodied, viscous, a dash of spice on the entry with very good weight in the mouth. There is still that lovely saltiness on the finish that leaves you begging for another sip - completing a long-term Yquem that is only just finishing its first couple of chapters. Tasted April 2016.
